2015 SEND North America Conference

This week at the Center for Great Commission Studies, Mike Dodson – NAMB mobilizer at Southeastern – highlights the church planting strategy of NAMB and its upcoming SEND North America conference.

Here’s an excerpt:

Never before has the light of the gospel been so needed in North America and to the ends of the earth. Who will carry that light into the darkness? Who will boldly speak the truth? This mission is not just for a select few. The movement of God’s mission happens through everyday, ordinary lives. Join one of the largest gatherings of the Church in North America. Be part of a movement of people seeking to live out the mission of God in their everyday lives. Don’t miss the SEND North America Conference in Nashville, August 3-4, 2015.
